The need.

  • Connect the district’s 260+ locations with one manageable network.

  • Streamline the district’s existing 297-circuit frame relay wide area network (WAN) and voice network.

The solution.

  • We built a fiber optic wide area network to provide connectivity throughout the district.

  • The resulting network has four 10Gbps core rings connected through Ethernet between 22 sites, with point-to-point connections out to the 260+ facilities.

The impact.

  • The new network successfully supports the district’s voice, video and data traffic across all facilities.

  • By using direct connections, our network is able to provide security, flexibility and data control.
